Dada 5000 claims he ‘died’ during fight against Kimbo Slice
Dada 5000 claims he was revived from the dead after his fight against Kimbo Slice nearly two months ago.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday that he later deleted, the MMA fighter, whose real name is Dhafir Harris, said he suffered two heart attacks during his loss to Slice and “died.”

Harris lost by TKO in the third round, but he went down because his body was failing — not because of the hit from Slice. He suffered a broken orbital bone and was severely dehydrated and fatigued. At some point, Harris went into cardiac arrest. You can watch a video of the finish here.
Harris lost 40 pounds heading into his fight against Kimbo, which may have contributed to his poor health. From the sound of it, he is fortunate to be alive.
